Autumn Leaves Restart

I frogged what I had of my Autumn Leaves Cardi (pattern is Summer Solstice) and restarted it. I'm now almost to the same place I was before I found out I had been doing the shoulder decreases in the wrong place. The fact that I already had my notes and knew what to do on what row made it go faster this second time. (If you're wondering why I frogged and started over, look at last Friday's post. The pattern has been updated and now there's no question where to work the shoulder shaping.)

We're gearing up for school around here. I have a pile of school supplies to double check against the list. Yesterday Caleb went to see the orthodontist for the first time and he's doing his first set of impressions next week to fit him for expanders. (Should be fun, he's got a hair trigger gag reflex and impressions can make anyone throw up. If he wants me in the room, I'll be behind him!) This morning we walked to school for the first time to see how long it takes. He's also got a check up at the pediatrician's next week, just to make sure he is growing right. Since he's grown 3 or 4 inches since January, I feel pretty confident that we're doing fine in that department. Then in less than 2 weeks, he's off to 3rd grade!

My sympathies about the ortho visit. I'm like Caleb, but a grownup. (sigh) Fortunately, my DDS is a wonder and patient. We did find that having me sit up as much as possible during the waiting is very helpful. Good luck.

Our schools started this week and most of the kids were ready to get back into the routine. If our state would stay out of the start date our area would have started a week earlier. Then again we get Fall and Spring break. Good luck with the braces and the knitting. :)

I too, have a very strong gag reflex. My hygienist taught me that if you put a pinch of salt on your tongue, swallow, and then they work in your mouth right away, it reduces your gagging. It really works. I hope it helps Caleb.

I understand about impressions and gagging. Please make sure they don't scrape clean the mixing knife with the molding material for the upper form/tray by scraping it against the center of the form/tray, right where it would be a blob on the center of the upper palate. If they keep the molding material in that area as thin as possible, it helps (along with Robby's suggestion of sitting upright). Good luck to Caleb -- and you!
